5 reasons to buy the 2019 Volvo XC60

1. Choice of three powerful engines

The 2019 Volvo XC60 has a choice of three available engines, all packing a powerful punch. First is the T5 engine, a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder producing 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. For more oomph, go for the T6 engine, a turbocharged and supercharged motor that increases output to 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. If that's not enough, there's the T8 eAWD Plug-In Hybrid, which combines the T6 engine with an electric motor and battery pack to produce 400 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. The best part? You can find any of these three engine options on any trim of the 2019 Volvo XC60. 

2. Available plug-in hybrid

The electric motor of the T8 eAWD Plug-In Hybrid boosts power output considerably, but all that extra power doesn't come at the expense of more trips to the pump—quite the opposite, in fact. For example, the 2019 Volvo XC60 with the 2.0L T5 engine and FWD gets an impressive EPA-estimated 24 mpg combined.

 But with much more power and AWD, the T8 PHEV powertrain gets an EPA-estimated 58 MPGe combined/26 mpg combined in hybrid mode.
 You'll love the performance and versatility of this plug-in hybrid. 

3. Vast and comfortable interior

The 2019 Volvo XC60 is considered a compact SUV, but there's nothing compact about it. There's a total of 103 cu-ft of passenger volume to enjoy, with 41.5 inches of front-seat legroom and 38 inches of rear-seat legroom. Plus, there's plenty inside to make your journeys as comfortable as possible. The base Momentum trim features dual-zone automatic climate control and an infotainment system with a nine-inch touchscreen. At the top of the range, the Luxury Seating package for the Inscription trim includes premium leather upholstery, heated, ventilated, and massaging front seats, and adaptive air suspension for a smooth ride. 

4. Plenty of features

A choice of three trims and four option packages means there's guaranteed to be a 2019 Volvo XC60 that fits your lifestyle. The base Momentum trim has a wealth of features as standard, including a power liftgate and driver aids like lane keep assist. The R-Design trim offers sporty options like LED front fog lights and paddle shifters on the steering wheel, and the premium Inscription trim includes four-zone climate control and a cooled glove box. Additionally, three of the four option packages are available on every trim, like the Premium package with front and rear parking sensors and a hands-free tailgate. 

5. Strong towing capacity

Looking for an ideal daily driver that can also handle tough jobs when needed? The 2019 Volvo XC60 has impressive pulling power for a compact SUV, with a towing capacity of up to 3,500 lbs. when properly equipped, no matter which engine you choose.

 For daily tasks that typically require a more specialized vehicle—or for road trips with extra cargo and supplies—the 2019 Volvo XC60 is a capable and versatile compact SUV.
